Nasty note targets an autistic boy

His Mom doesn't believe he was being overly loud, but someone thought those sounds justified a note slipped into her cart.

(WOOD) Six-year-old Granderson is an expert on everything fire alarms -- makes, models and their noises. His mom, Brittany Miller, says he often imitates their noise when he sees one or as a coping mechanism if there's a lot of other noise around him.

Like many people with autism, Granderson becomes passionate about something and focuses on learning as much as possible.

"It becomes his number one goal to know everything about it. It's a totally different way of learning but he's fully capable of learning that and so much more," Miller says.

While shopping Wednesday, Granderson was imitating a fire alarm.

Miller doesn't believe he was being overly loud, but someone thought those sounds justified a note slipped into her cart that read, "Buy that kid a muzzle!!"

"I turn around and I'm talking to my son. I was helping him fix his shoe. I turn back around and there's a note on top of my bags," Miller explained.
